Some fun facts about the Triceratops from Wikipedia include:
- Triceratops means ‘three-horned face.’
- It lived during the Late Cretaceous period and was found in the United States.
- The Triceratops could be up to 30 feet long.
- Triceratops were herbivores (plant eaters) and because their head was so low to the ground, they primarily likely ate mostly low growing vegetation. It is possible that they might have been able to knock down taller plants with their horns and brute strength.
Coloring or painting this free printable baby dinosaur coloring page is a great activity for little boys and girls that are preschool or kindergarten-aged kids. However, these simple dinosaurs might be fun for older students as well.
